    xtine's Note:

    I created this for my Dad's birthday by combining 3 other recipes. He wanted a soft cake instead of a crumbly biscuit, and I wanted it to have a nice vanilla custard, so this is what I came up with. He loved it! You can make the cake and the custard a day ahead, but do not cut cake until you are ready to serve, as it will dry out.

      5 Stars are NOT enough for this recipe! I thought I only liked a biscuit type shortcake but I now stand corrected. This beats any dessert I've ever had anywhere. Recipe is easy to follow and I made a special trip to the store for the buttermilk & SR Flour. It was worth the trip. Make this exactly as written and you won't go wrong. Thank you so much for joining PAC Spring 2008 and this wonderful recipe that I will make again and again!
